Traveling a bumpy road!

So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've learned to stop eating when full and I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking much of the time. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister V�ronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems.

I try to keep smiling and stay positive-not always easy, but the good Lord helps. I love life from infancy to old age.
I retired May 25th, 2012.
My 5 children and 6 grandchildren are an important part of my life.

With the exception of my cholesterol levels and a mobile blood pressure I am relatively healthy. Both my son's care and my weight contribute the occasionally elevated blood pressure. My cholesterol has been high since I was in my 40's and I am allergic to statin drugs which limits what I can take for the cholesterol problem.

SparkPoints: 94,540

Fitness Minutes: 95,795

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.
2. I will walk no LESS THAN 5,000 steps and work my way past 10,000.
3. to be more positive, and supportive to those around me, especially new widows.



My Program:
To watch what I eat, most importantly cutting back on cholesterol and sodium. Work to change a sedentary life into a more active life, which is difficult for me. Even though retired, I'm knitting and sewing more that makes for a still sedentary life.

Personal Information:
I was born in Bedford, Ohio of a Belgian mom and an American GI. I have lived in Belgium, Ohio, Florida and am currently in Georgia. I am widowed and have five grown children, one of whom had a traumatic brain injury June 2010 and for whom I am the court appointed Custodial Guardian.

Other Information:
I like to knit, sew-when I have time and play with my grandchildren.
I'd love to be able to travel again, to go back to Belgium and Austria, to see Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.

Thanks for reading and commenting on my travel blog. Still 4 countries to go. I never find the time to post much while traveling so my reports are always a retrospective look at where I've been.

We always let the family research and decide where they want to go and their favorite sites/activities. Then DH & I put together a workable plan. I love seeing things through their eyes, even places I've visited before.

Dear Ginie, I loved your comment on my blog! It was hard to express what I was trying to say, but I can tell that you understood! Thank you for that! I had not thought about calling it Nirvana, but I think you are absolutely correct, and we're not meant to stay there in this life--only to catch fleeting glimpses of it.

Your comment was so wise.

Thanks for asking about my back pain. I am puzzled by it. I woke in the night and it hurt like crazy. I would say it is a bit improved since I've been up and moving, took an Aleve and put on an Icy Hot. I've actually had an easy couple of days, didn't do any new exercise and don't remember an incident. I think a soak is in my near future.

I hope the dog situation gets better!

GINIE, I have carried epipens for years. I just looked at he date and I realize it is past due. The pharmacist said he would get our new Dr to prescribe the [pens so far no go.
I am not a happy camper without our epipens. DO TRY TO GET ONE.
It was great the girls get together.
When the DIL is around she does not usually talk to the older daughter so I had a chat with our son. COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY. !! HUGS Pat in Maine.
We have hot weather but not as hot as you have.

So do TAKE CARE HUGS PAT ((OXOXOXOX~~~HUGS))) emoticon
